I believe that companions are one of the greatest influences in the life of a girl. It is true that every normal human being has a desire to associate with others, and finds genuine pleasure in exchanging ideas with her fellow-women.
Young ladies today have a great deal of leisure, so naturally they seek friends with whom they may enjoy themselves. Perhaps there is one in the group who tries to dominate the others.
He or she suggests a certain movie, definetely objectionable. Unless the other boys and girls stand firm, this bad companion will influence them to attend the movie.
In a similar way, bad books, magazines and comics maybe spread at the suggestion of a companion of doubtful character.
Sometimes, young people think they are strong enough to resist temptation, saying “I won’t imitate this person; I shall just ignore him.”
Unconsciously, you are being influenced, the will is weakened, and soon you will yield to the suggestions of the tempter.
Reflecting on the banefl influence of certain companions, let us resolve wisely to choose associates whose examples serve as a model of true virtue.
